It's been great fun. The oil pastels are a revelation - soft and creamy, laden with colour - after the cheaper ones I've owned for a while. The restricted colour range is interesting to work with (although they are frequently difficult to tell apart), and taking an A4 pad (of special oil pastel paper, as it happens, primed and interleaved with protective cover sheets) and a box of pastels is so much simpler (and lighter) than my painting expedition gear. I've been finding benches to sit on - churches and country parks are good for that - so my work trousers don't get too muddy or wet.
